Why is Kevin Nash hated so much over here?

Firstly, the one thing that I've noticed is that people always talk shit about his 1995's year long title reign. Firstly, Kevin Nash didn't really ave decent opponents. Jeff Jarrett, British Bulldog and Mabel aren't really draws. Plus, all three of them are inferior to Nash in terms of being the total package - size, charisma, look, mic skills and ring skills. So those three too deserve equal amount of blame. Apart from them, Nash had feuds with Bret, Owen, Shawn and Taker. And with all four of them, he had worked entertaining feuds. Although Nash isn't the best in the ring, he did put on decent matches wiyh those guys. So yeah, that clearly proves that Nash wasn't responsible for his title reign being a bit lacklustre, it was mainly because of the booking and because of his opponents.

Apart from that, he's hated for backstage politics. Okay, he did make bad decisions like ending Goldberg's streak in that way, the Fingerpoke of Doom, etc. He did make decisions which resulted in the death of WCW. But that was nothing compared to what Eric Bischoff, Vince Russo and Hulk Hogan did. They did worse and they were more responsible for WCWs death than Nash. Nash's shows weren't the best but when compared to Russo's stuff when he came into WCW, Nash's stuff looked like Shakespeare compared to Russo's.

Its just blind hate!

OP you basically answered your own question.

As a kid in the AE I didn't really see his appeal. He was always on the mic but never really doing anything. I only watched WCW for Goldberg.

Re: Why is Kevin Nash hated so much over here?

You're starting a shitstorm, you know that right?

First off, he's not the total package. In-ring skills? Technically, he was carried especially in his bouts against Bret and HBK. '95 is looked down due to the light on stars roster, jobberfests and crap gimmicks. Looks? Big, tall guy with long hair. Charisma? Kind of, but nothing extraordinary. I'm stopping here. I could go on, but I don't want to. I've read your posts, you come off as an immature kid. Stop posting nonsense and no one will trash you. And stop crying about red rep. They're just red squares that don't affect you in real life. The more you cry, the more you get. Simple as that.

Oh and before I forget: Diesel.Mabel.Summerslam.1996. Vince thought that would be a good idea. It wasn't.

You answered your own question. You didn't see his appeal because you just cared about Goldberg.

Well.... If Nash is marketed not on his wrestling skills then surely its his job to get people caring for him in some form? For instance the likes of Benoit may not have been attractions at the time but he did put up a show. Nash basically failed to deliver. I dont hate the guy. He sounds funny but fact is he failed to deliver what very little he had to offer.

Because in his vision, wrestling would be basketball players punching each other to their deaths.
